==comment==

Directed by and starring Frank Sinatra. The screenplay was written by John Twist, with two Japanese co-authors, based on a story by a Japanese author.

It is interesting reading about these WWII movies, which we seem to have a slew of in these most recent rounds. It makes sense: 1965 was 20 years after the end of WWII and many of the men who served in the war would have been in their forties. Probably enough time had passed that they were ready to remember--and reflect--on their wartime experiences, and movies such as this (and the other one I just played, King Rat) gave them a context to do so.

'a patch of blue' refers to the sky, and the color the blind woman remembers from her childhood

Another Italian Spaghetti Western  ;D

Also Known As:
Cuatro implacables, Los (Spain)
The Relentless Four (USA)

From IMDb:
Starring Adam West of the painfully boring "Outlaws is Coming," with the three stooges  and TV-Batman fame.  This film has great camera work, suspenseful fights, an awesome music score, and an excellent story that is actually kind of original for a spaghetti western. The acting is funny in a couple of parts, but that just adds to the charm. This is, after all, a spaghetti western. If you're expecting a Gary Cooper or John Wayne movie, then stay away from this one and leave it to those of us who appreciate and understand the appeal of the Italian westerns.

couldn't not play this one...







I still find Christopher Plummer absolutely to die for in this role...
